Food makes peace
30/12/2020: The Nobel Peace Prize for 2020 has been awarded to the World Food Program (WFP) for its efforts in the fight against hunger, and for creating the conditions for peace in areas with a high risk of conflict. WFP is the world's largest humanitarian organization for eliminating hunger and promoting food security.
A Task for Eternity
02/11/2020: Deep inside a mountain on an island in the Svalbard archipelago, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, more than one million seeds of crops from around the world are stored in the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. The storage facility thus contains the world’s largest backup collection of seed samples. By establishing the Seed Vault, Norway has taken on a global task that will never be completed. The best way to manage this responsibility is to do so in an eternal perspective.
